Piping support material management
Sumo5 is an application designed to manage and quantify piping supports materials; its main capability is to retain the Company’s standard support drawings, read the quantities from the 3D model or other sources, and deliver Material Take-Off and Material Requisition based on the Company’s requirements.
Piping support material management is a key factor in the engineering process; Sumo5 allows the Users to carry on the design tasks without having to worry about material management: the list of materials can be imported from the 3D model or from any other source, such as Microsoft© Excel™ files, making it easy to work with.
Company’s piping support standards are loaded into the application with their parametric dimensions; while importing data from the 3D model or other source, Sumo5 calculates the needed quantities and generates a Material Take-Off.
Besides managing the standard supports – which are available for every project stored in the same database – Sumo5 can manage also the materials related to special supports for the Material Take-Off and the Material Requisition of each single project; in this case, however, they are visible only for the current project.
